I'm interested in being able to easily(?) compute my cost of fuel in driving our Energi.
We charge with the regular wall charger, so we are unable to track kWh of energy being used to charge the vehicle. I know of the loss of electricity from the wall to the vehicle.
I reset Trip 2 when we bought the vehicle, so it has cumulative information stored. I also know how many gallons of gas I've put in. And I know what I pay for electricity, and have been saving my driving record each week in a PDF, once I realized it disappears from MyFordMobile after a week or so (depending on number of trips and charges).
How do people that track fuel usage do this?
I find the Trip info confusing, because I think it's including energy generated by braking and coasting, no? So for my last tank, I went 733.4 miles on 10.75 gallons of gas, and I used 150 kWh. If that didn't include braking and coasting, I could simply take that number, use say 72% efficiency, use my cost of electricity, and then do a cost per mile including gas.
Any insights, pointing towards references that give some better explanations and ways to track things? I want to track gas used, electricity (from wall) used, then compute cost per mile driven.
I have an OBDII reader (I use FORScan on my F-150) if info is stored somewhere that I can go find periodically.
